The Journal of Land and Rural Studies is currently accepting papers for a special issue on Land Acquisition, Rehabilitation and Resettlement in India. The Journal of Land and Rural Studies, a bi-annual peer-reviewed journal published by SAGE India under the aegis of Centre for Rural Studies, LBSNAA, aims to provide a platform for a wide ranging exchange of scholarly opinions, both theoretical and empirical, on issues relating to rural development in India while also drawing on relevant experiences from other countries and contexts.

Special Issue Call for Papers

Land acquisition in India is contested from different standpoints: legal and policy formulation, economic, political, socio-cultural and spatial, and environmental. Consequent displacement and negative impacts on large section of the displaced population has stressed for fair compensation and rehabilitation and resettlement (R&R). Also, learning from past experiences of R&R and packages offered by public/private enterprises have raised issues of transparency, accountability of the enterprises as well as ensuring better quality of life or according status of shareholders to the displaced persons. The legal actions and collective/social actions have indicated a need for ‘tackling federal issues’, that is the Centre and State dynamics at play with regard to land acquisition and R&R measures; democracy-related issues—democratic norms and processes to protect citizen’s rights versus fiscal gains and growth; judicial and executive issues including vision and principles and institutional mechanism for compensation as well as R&R measures; and to understand the nexus between the State and the market for enhancing economic growth.

The journal invites special articles (maximum 8,000 words), articles (maximum 5,000 words), working papers/from grass roots (maximum 3,000 words), policy briefs (maximum 2,000 words) and book reviews (maximum 1,200 words) on the following themes:
